St. Martin Secondary School is a separate Roman Catholic secondary school in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is under the jurisdiction of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. It was founded in 1968 as St. Martin Senior School. Grade 7 students were taught at St. Francis School in the gym and Grade 8 students were taught at St. Catherine School in the gym until the new St. Martin Senior School was ready for occupancy sometime in October[citation needed]. The first graduating class attended St. Martin School for seven years, from grade 7 to 13.

Since 1968, St. Martin Secondary School stood on Rosemary Drive. Every year, students were told that St. Martin’s were on the top of the list for renovation. In 2000, the time came and plans for the new building were drawn up. In the school year 2000-2001, students were occupied at SMSS Streetsville Campus waiting for the building to be reconstructed. In September 2001, the “new and improved” St Martin’s building was finished; it’s the building that still stands up in Rosemary Drive today.

St. Martin Secondary School is the oldest school in Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary in school year 2018-2019.

St. Martin Secondary School offers a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in sports.
